Is Wedding Videography Important?

A wedding is a live event, not a single moment. Make sure you get it captured right!

We used to say that if we had to decide between wedding videography and wedding photography, we simply couldn’t wouldn’t be able to. But in recent times, our opinion is starting to sway to a particular side of the fence…


The last 5 years has brought more changes to the video/film industry than anyone had thought possible, and video that was once poorly rated in comparison to photography has made a justified resurgence in recent times.


A perfectly captured wedding photo contains glamour, class, beauty – and is of course a stunning feature……but what if that same glamourous, classy, beautifully stunning picture could move, showing a sequence of events, sounds, reactions, emotions and details that a single photo could not provide? Which would you choose?


This is where wedding videography is going. New technology has made it possible to provide not just a wedding video look, but wedding film look at an affordable price to couples looking for the ultimate cinematic recording of their day. New cameras, new lenses and new stabilization equipment has made this possible, and the result is a very exciting time for wedding video – a time that you couldn’t blame the humble wedding photographer for being a bit daunted by.


In the end, we still wouldn’t ever do without our wedding photos, but don’t fall into the trap of under-estimating what wedding video can provide; it could be something that you regret for the rest of your life.


Remember: A wedding is a live event, not a single moment. Make sure you get it captured right – you’re only going to do it once.
